So it seems that Wednesday is going to be the best day for our day of prayer and fasting for Baby Abenezer. By then, we're also hoping to know something from what's going on in Addis right now: the judge who presided over this case has promised an official report on her ruling by Wednesday, and since they're 11 hours ahead of us (on the west coast), we're hoping for more detailed information then...which could help with knowing more how to pray as well.
Thank you so much for all of you who said you would join the ranks! Of course, if Wednesday doesn't work out best for you, feel free to pray whenever (and as often as) you want to. I'm humbled humbled humbled by this outpouring of care and can't say thank you enough. Hope is slowly creeping back into my heart...
Finally, talk about being humbled: our blogging friend Jocelyn just passed this award on to us today. What a gift from someone who has been a shining example of Fortitude and Perseverance.
